DISCOVER THE HEART OF PRACTICE IN A 6-DAY REIKI RETREAT
Troncones, Mexico January 25-February 1, 2020
The Heart of Practice Reiki Retreat is open to home or professional Reiki practitioners from all lineages. Come refresh yourself and deepen your practice in six heavenly days and seven stunning sunsets on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Space is limited so reserve yours now!
WHY A RETREAT?
Do you want to get more from your Reiki practice, or from life?
Does the state of our world make you anxious? Do you have a health concern, or weighed down by an important decision?
In our 6-day, 7-night retreat, you’ll immerse yourself in Reiki practice, rest, self-inquiry and supportive community, and find the steady contentment that lies within you.
You’ll gently transform unhealthy attitudes and open your heart to yourself, and to others.
Spirtual nourishment + great food
You’ll leave your retreat feeling seen, heard, respected and loved — by yourself, and those around you — and feeling empowered to step into your future. And nourished by walks on the gorgeous ocean beach and two delicious meals each day, dinner and breakfast, prepared to fit your dietary needs.
Lunch is available at the restaurant or in the town of Troncones, as you prefer.
We'll meet each morning and late afternoon for practice and conversation to explore your spiritual experience, find clarity and discover your own meaning. Afternoons are on your own.
I tweak each retreat to serve all who participate. Everyone — home practitioner or Reiki professional — becomes a co-creator of our retreat, ensuring your priorities are addressed.
If you're a Reiki professional, you might explore how you can share your Reiki experience with potential clients and students more effectively.
Recently published research shows a wellness week brings immediate benefits that last at least six weeks. Our retreat is even more powerful. Not only will you find profound rest, you’ll have hours of transformative practice and discussion each day, including table treatment while you watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean. And you'll leave with new skills.
Please join me for a profoundly restorative week full of practices to keep creating happiness and health for life!
OUR REIKI RETREAT SITE
We'll be right on the beach at the beautiful Present Moment Retreat site in the small town of Troncones, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. Temperatures hover around 80°F during the day. The sun is always shining.
A short Reiki free-write session follows self-practice each morning, so you’ll leave with a new skill to help you continue deepening, exploring and discovering on your own.
Our retreat balances inner and outer, so you'll reenter your life refreshed, in wonder, and equipped to stay that way.
You’ll return home with the deep well of support you've discover within yourself and in the community we create, a well that can become a lifelong resource and the skills to keep developing.
Truly, what could be better?
I am thrilled to share this with you! And who am I?
RETREAT HOST PAMELA MILES
I’m Pamela Miles, an international Reiki master and spiritual teacher based in New York City, author of REIKI: A Comprehensive Guide and the foremost Medical Reiki pioneer.
I started practicing meditation and yoga and using traditional healing approaches as an adolescent.
I learned to practice Reiki in 1986, and have have been practicing daily self-Reiki ever since. When I learned Reiki, I was a professional healer and meditation teacher, sharing with clients the practices and knowledge that made such a difference in my life, so I began offering Reiki treatment to my clients.
While maintaining my private practice, I began collaborating in conventional medicine in the 1990s, creating Reiki programs in prominent New York City hospitals, including New York Presbyterian-Columbia Hospital and Beth Israel Medical Center; teaching at academic medical centers, including Harvard and Yale medical schools and the NIH; collaborating on research; publishing peer-reviewed medical papers; and mentoring Reiki home and professional practitioners.
As a media spokesperson--NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX, The Dr. Oz Show, U.S. News & World Report, New York Magazine, Refinery29, The Daily Beast, Allure--I remain committed to bringing Reiki practice to a broad mainstream public, and
to helping Reiki practitioners develop depth and clarity in their practice and skillful communication, so that more people can benefit.

You'll fly into Ixtapa airport. Your retreat fee includes rides to and from the airport to our retreat site, where I'll welcome you on Saturday, January 25.
You'll leave oh-so-refreshed a week later, on Saturday, February 1 so you'll have a day to rest when you get home before starting your work week.

We'll have dinner Saturday evening. Our retreat sessions start Sunday morning, January 26 and run through Friday evening, January 31. Saturday, February 1 is your return travel day.
Our special Reiki retreat fee includes:

Other optional activities such as whale watching or a cacao ceremony can be arranged for an additional fee.
The town of Troncones is walkable. If you want a ride, taxis are inexpensive.

A WORD ABOUT FOOD
Present Moment’s healthy cuisine is a delicious Intercontinental Fusion style featuring fresh-caught seafood, vegetarian specialties, regional Latin American dishes, Asian delicacies, and housemade Desserts. They also serve a wide variety of mouthwatering Smoothies and Elixirs, and will gladly create special meals for guests with special dietary menus.
Our retreat includes breakfast and dinner (lunch is on your own on site or in town, as you choose). The breakfast buffet includes coffee, tea, fruits, yoghurts, and two hot items such as eggs, mixed veggies, or pancakes (selections change daily). At breakfast, you’ll receive a consolidated menu with dinner selections.
My fave lunch cafe is steps away and there's a very authentic Mexican cantina just down the road.
TRAVEL INFO TO EASE YOUR JOURNEY
Ixtapa, the local airport, is a half hour drive from Troncones.
Your retreat fee includes transportation to and from the airport, so be sure to let us know your flight plans.
There are many possibilities if you want to extend your time in Mexico. I always enjoy a stopover in Mexico City, or consider a few days in Oaxaca City (I can suggest a B&B and a great mezcal tour!) or San Miguel de Allende. Both offer a lot of culture and interesting day trips.
What do I need to pack?
Days are warm to hot, nights are cooler. Always good to pack a light jacket or sweater, and some long pants. And of course, bring a bathing suit or two. Towels are provided.
Our sessions are in an open-air pavilion with curtains drawn for privacy. You might want a shawl for the morning.
Bring a notebook or journal and your favorite pen.
Reserve your place now!
Are you as excited as I am? YESSS!!!
We'll be a small group, so act now to secure your space. Remember the fee includes breakfast, lodging and all retreat sessions.
This is an intimate, supportive, loving retreat for a small group. There are limited accommodations and space is strictly first come, first served.
DO NOT make travel arrangements until we've confirmed there is space for you.

Thank you also for an absolutely fabulous retreat! It renewed my deep enthusiasm for Reiki, and was a powerful reminder that I serve my aspirations best when I take good care of myself.

The heart of practice retreat was a truly empowering, fulfilling experience. Pamela’s generous, gracious leadership in a breathtakingly beautiful setting enabled us to deepen our Reiki practice, expand our understanding of healing, and create a foundation to move forward as Reiki practitioners.
— Rashiah Elam
The Reiki retreat in Mexico with Pamela Miles was a unique and special event. Spending the week with Pamela and the Reiki practitioners was a profound experience. The beautiful and peaceful setting promoted meditation and reflection. Due to Pamela’s ability to personalize the discussions I came away with a stronger feeling of peacefulness, love, and knowledge. I am forever grateful to Pamela for her guidance and inspiration.
— Lois Bonaccorsi
When I engage with Pamela, I know I’m in the presence of someone who is self-possessed and has my best interests at heart. It is a rare thing to bring these qualities together with a healing practice that transforms not just the body but the inner state as well. Pamela embodies the spirit and promise of Reiki.
